AI Finds Telltale Arcs of Light in Deep Space

An artificial intelligence (AI) system has found telltale arcs of light in deep space that could be evidence of new black holes or neutron stars. The AI, called Einstein@Home, analyzed data from the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) and found the arcs in images of distant galaxies. The arcs are caused by the gravitational lensing effect, which bends light around massive objects. The AI’s findings could help scientists better understand the formation and evolution of black holes and neutron stars.
